Suffolk County Police officers and good Samaritans rescued a kitten that was stuck under the hood of a parked car in Ronkonkoma on Thursday afternoon.

A woman was walking to her car after leaving work at GE Aviation on Arrival Avenue when she heard a meowing from inside her Hyundai Sonata at 2:30 p.m.

After she and 10 of her co-workers spent two hours looking under the hood trying to find the kitten, they eventually called police for help.

Airport Operations Section and Emergency Services Section officers responded, removed the driver’s side headlight assembly and found the kitten wedged between the battery and front bumper.

A GE Aviation employee pulled the cat out of the car at 5 p.m.

The black with white kitten, which appeared to be five-weeks-old, was not injured.
